Intermittent catheters are medical devices, which help to drain the urinary bladder in patients who lose control over their bladder. These catheters are inserted into the urethra and are guided to the bladder, which causes the urine to flow though the catheter tube and drain into the collection bag. Moreover, self-catheterization is possible using these catheters. Children aging seven or eight years can be trained to handle catheterization.
